Jewitt McLuckie started the year by visiting with medical students at Ottawa Hospital’s general campus. On January 3, 2018, Randy and Alycia met with physical medicine and rehabilitation resident physicians to talk to them about how they can best support patients who struggle with disability and who are having difficulty accessing disability benefits. Both Randy and Alycia were impressed by the engagement and intelligence of the young women and men who attended the session.
